Beef Tea:

1 lb lean beef, cut into small pieces. Put into a glass canning jar, without a drop of water, cover tightly and set in a pot of cold water. Heat gradually to a boil and continue this streadily for three hours, until the meat is like white rags and the juice drawn out. Season with salt to tast and, when cold, skim.
